Good morning. Prior to this, did the landlord file for eviction with the court? Did you get served with anything?

I met with their attorney and signed a consent judgment rent and possession. It did state that if any payment is not made when due plaintiff may execute on this judgment without further notice.

Thank you. Yes, if that happened, then they would have a right to proceed in this manner. At this time, the only thing you could do is 1) call the landlord or their attorney and try and resolve this and propose a new settlement or 2) file an emergency motion with the court, asking the Judge to stop this. For that to happen, you would need to show good cause and a legal basis, for it to happen, since the landlord would have a legal right to the property.
